The Blue Mountains: Wentworth Falls
I am falling in love, with Australia that is. Between the beautiful Sydney city and the fresh coastal beaches - and now the vast Blue Mountains, who could blame me?
Friday I discovered the Blue Mountains, a large national park just about a 2 hour train ride from downtown Sydney. There are a handful of train stops for the national park, so I picked Wentworth Falls seeing on a map there was a hiking trail that started from the train station.
The Charles Darwin trail was a peaceful 2km bushwalk leading directly from the train station to the Wentworth Falls trek:
After seeing the waterfall, I continued on the Undercliff Trail (which lives up to it's name):
The views were breathtaking and these pictures do not do them justice. Here I tried to take a video to capture the experience a bit more:
Note: It is not raining in this video, I am standing under a small waterfall.
I wanted to continue on one of the other many trails in the area, but my growling stomach and knowing the sun sets early on these winter days convinced me to head back into town. As the sun began to disappear I was already cozied up with some hot chocolate at the cutest little bookstore cafe.
Cheers to another successful adventure!
